  • More than meets the eye! I was very impressed with the items they have preserved and displayed here! I will be stopping back soon to do a little more exploring!
  • When I had went there, I could experience what it felt like for those people when they had previously entered the courtroom and the jail that people entered, of what used to be a courthouse/jail. I could experience what it felt like. The other thing is is that I had felt a presence beside me. It was really cool that I jad got to go there, it just when I had felt that presence, I had felt terrified. It's still a great museum to go to.
  • Lovely building.
  • My family in Fort Wayne recently visited the Historical Museum. Impressed, they reported it was a wonderful experience with one exception, the small AAGPBL display. Do you have plans for expanding Fort Wayne's historical All American Girls Professional Baseball (AAGPBL) exhibit? I believe if interest were expressed by the Fort Wayne Historical Museum to enlarge and dignify the exhibit, citizens would respond. Also, Fort Wayne's support of the Future Daisy League (for girls 15 to 20 years old) would be worthy of mention: It is all quite unique to Fort Wayne's history and of great interest to folks here in the south.
